Gun Control Makes Terrorists Using Nastier Weapons

A MAN armed with an axe has gone on a rampage at a train station in Germany, reportedly injuring at least seven people.
Police arrested a 36-year-old man from former Yugoslavia following the terrifying attack at the central train station in Dusseldorf.

"The former Yugoslavia"? I wonder what part? Yugoslavia hasn't existed for over twenty years, and it's not as if it's constituent regions have been lying comatose for all that time. Are we to have forgotten Bosnia, Serbia, Kosovo, mass graves and ethnic cleansing? And what is the name of the accused? An odd omission.

Some fifteen years ago another blogger, Egregious Charlie, who has since sadly stopped blogging, wrote that whenever something bad happens, it is described in terms that can include white Christian males. Terrorism? Religious Fundamentalists. The extinction of North American Megafauna? Early Man. Another blogger you link to references this on his home page where he says that when the media simply refers to an accused perpetrator without reference to race or ethnicity or religion, then the accused is a minority and/or non-Christian.
The opposite is not true. For instance, Aboriginal or Native American art.

Perhaps not such an odd omission.
